My husband and I love this recipe. They are very easy to make and make a delicious side for steak.

We love sweet potatoes and as a diabetic I can have a little bit more than I can with regular potatoes and these were delicious served with a roast chicken and steamed green vegetables. I did scale it back for 2-3 serves and it was adequate for the 3 of us. Thank you Suzy QZ, made for PAC.

GREAT, ABSOLUTELY GREAT! Yet another recipe where I didn't have to peel the yams that I used ~ Instead I cleaned & sliced them, then cut the slices into quarters so that the pieces of peel wouldn't be very large! Then I followed the recipe! Here's a very nice, new way for us to enjoy this sometimes neglected vegetable! Thanks for a great keeper of a recipe!

I have never had sweet potatoes any other way than with brown sugar butter and marshmallows and my first deviation from my norm was pretty good! I used frozen sweet potatoes that I had gotten from the Schwan's man. Very nice! I like!
